DO NOT CATCH THIS FLU!
NOT CATCH THIS FLU. The Flu first emerges as a deceptively mild cold
that lasts for 3 days or so. You may even feel the cold disappearing and
your energy flaring anew, but DO NOT BE FOOLED. For verily, on the 4th
day, the Flu shall blossom and soak and rage through your helpless flesh, and your only entertainment will be the flashing interior
of your eyelids. Yea, even when the second day arrives and the fever
has abated, DO NOT BE FOOLED (as I am not), for it may be merely resting
and lurking, prepared to ambush, to strike, to attack again, as it
chortles and chuckles like Lee Van Cleef, delighting in its boundless
evil. I repeat: DO NOT CATCH THIS FLU. Thank you.
